Reviews Echo After Echo

  • Melanie
    “This is the Aurelia Theater. It feels like coming home.” Echo after Echo is an own voices novel, that has such a beautiful f/f romance, surrounding a Broadway theater crew getting ready for opening night, while also trying to solve a murder mystery that may or may not be a curse set on the theater they all love and adore. I devoured this with a smile on my face. I was completely enthralled and immersed by this. I love this story with my ent...
  • Elise (TheBookishActress)
    The thing I keep coming back to about Echo after Echo is the sheer power of the writing. Almost everything about this book is awesome, but the writing is stunning. It is "I will remember this for the rest of my life" stunning. I genuinely do not remember the last time I read a book written so beautifully. I wanted to highlight every other sentence but I didn't want to put it down because it was so. fucking. engaging. I am going to read every sing...
  • Cece (ProblemsOfaBookNerd)
    *4.5/5Breathtaking in a heart-pounding, utter-dread-with-a-side-of-truly-remarkable-romance kind of way. In other words, a book that was perfectly suited to me.

    Echo After Echo is a f/f murder mystery set in a theater. I thought a book with a premise such as this couldn't be boring, but Echo After Echo had pacing problems, and that wasn't even the only thing that went wrong.Even mystery books I didn't love - for example, Far From You and Dangerous Girls - took me half a day. I read 90% of my one true weird love A Line in the Dark in one afternoon.Echo After Echo took me almost a week.What I love about my...
  • Mel (Epic Reading)
    It's so rare to find a book where the main characters are LGBTQ and their love story isn't engulfed in stigma or cultural acceptance. For me what makes Echo After Echo so wonderful is that at its core it's a love story that is not contrived, forced or surrounded in stigma. The Love StoryPerhaps this will not make sense to some, but I just have to say that for me (a bi-sexual woman), it is so refreshing to read a story where a woman falls in love ...

    Checkout my full review on my blog! http://omgbooksandmorebooks.blogspot....This book has the perfect elements of mystery, suspense and romance! I was afraid that I would not like this book because of the theater like elements but I was so wrong. It was actually one of the things I loved most about this book. AND there is a f/f romance AND one of the characters is bi. The writing is lyrical and enchanting. What more do you need from this book? Ev...

  • Marianne (Boricuan Bookworms)
    Around 3.5/5 stars? This is a murder mystery set in a sort of greek tragedy play with... a f/f romance between a fat jewish bisexual actress and a PUERTO RICAN lesbian lighting assistant and W O W. I had my doubts about it at first because the pacing seemed very slow and I wasn't sure what was going on, but after it passes the 60% mark things kind of start falling into place and there are a lot of red herrings but the romance!! Wow the romance ...
  • Shelly
    This was just amazing. The perfect amount of suspense/mystery mixed in with the theatre elements and the romance was just extraordinary. Add it to your TBR immediately!

    Argh, that was great! Everyone should read it. Since I'm awkward and couldn't decide, I'm leaving the rating as 4.25 stars. Thanks to Elise for being excited about this book last year and putting it on my radar! :)
  • Shelby M. (Read and Find Out)
    My Video Review3.5 starsSo much diversity! A bisexual female Jewish protagonist, a lesbian Puerto Rican secondary character, and a side character who talks about his experience with ADHD and dyslexia.Unfortunately I found the ending to be abrupt, but other than that I really enjoyed it.

  • Savannah (The Book Prophet)
    I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This in no way effects my overall rating of this book.This is shamefully the first book I’ve ever read with a f/f relationship as the main focus. I’ve read books with female couples on the side but not as the center focus of the story. That’s the main reason I decided to read this book since I’ve never read it before.The book also follows a young actress tryin...
  • Stella ☆Paper Wings☆
    Wowww this book took me completely by surprise!! I picked it up for the romance and got invested in the mystery. I also just went to a (pretty gay!) women's march this morning, so this was the perfect book for the day! It's super timely and much deeper than I expected.CharactersZara is such a powerful, precious squishbean!! And says she's bisexual on the page! Eli is hilarious and beautiful, and, and, and, they just broke my heart, y'all. The si...

    Literally, the first word that comes to mind when I think about this novel is 'adorable'. Zara is adorable. Eli is adorable. They are bloody adorable together, and I think my stone-cold heart nearly burst from the sheer cuteness of it all. It took a little bit of effort to get into the writing style at the beginning of this one, but once I managed to settle in, then I was pretty much hooked. I loved the concept of the novel, I loved how quickly I...

    holy SHIT?????? gimme some time to recover before I review this but holyyyyyy SHITTTT
  • ellie
    This book. Where do I start? Oh, of course. The writing. The incredibly beautiful writing that had no business being this beautiful when it was talking about a mystery set during a play. It's like...Phantom of the Opera, but without all the dramatic singing. There's still a murderous, complex man, but he doesn't really love anyone, and he doesn't wear a mask. But the whole vibe of this book fits that story, you know? But wait. Let me back up. Let...
  • Nicole Field
    I wish I could remember where this book was recommended to me from. Probably one of the many f/f lists that I'm on. This book was equal parts be careful what you wish for narrative and the paranoia of a modern gothic novel. I'm not sure I would have read this one if I had found out what it was about before I picked it up.Zara has only ever wanted to play Echo in the play Echo and Ariston. It's a tragic romance. She has never been in love before, ...

    Heeeee! I read this before most of you, and it's so so good! Pure dark sparkle magic, with sexy sprinkles on top.

    Zara leaves her home on her senior year of high school to seize a one in a life time opportunity: being the lead actress on her favorite play directed by Leopold Henneman himself. As soon as she gets there though, things start to go wrong, a man dies, she has to live with someone who clearly wanted her part on the play and she couldn’t feel more alone. That’s when she meets Eli, a girl who she pays too much attention to and who insists that t...
